Could your company be the Low Carbon Champions at this year’s Motor Transport Awards?

If your business has greatly reduced its carbon emissions by improving the efficiency of its operation or investing in alternative fuelled vehicles, then the Low Carbon Award, now in its 9th year, is still open for entry.

Sponsored by Keyfuels, the Low Carbon Award is open for any third party or own account operators running 11 or more commercial vehicles to enter.

Judges of the Motor Transport Awards will want to see some, or all, of the following criteria:

  • How you measure your carbon footprint, preferably using some recognised methodology;
  • What opportunities you identified to reduce carbon emissions;
  • What initiatives you have taken;
  • The outcomes in terms of reduced emissions (such as total tonnes of CO2 or grams of CO2 per tonne kilometre) and improved efficiency.

Last year’s winner, Malcolm Logistics, worked with SDC to increase the capacity of its railfreight wagons from 26 pallets to 30 pallets by increasing the length, boosting capacity by 15%.
